WINSLOW, Ariz. (AP) - A life-sized bronze statue of late musician Glenn Frey of the Eagles has been installed in the "Standing On The Corner" Park in Winslow, Arizona.
    
It joins the statue that many feel looks like Jackson Browne that has stood in the city's downtown area since the late 1990s.
    
Browne and Frey co-wrote the Eagles' song "Take it Easy" in 1972 that included the lyric "standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona."
    
Frey died in January at age 67.
    
Two radio personalities from Phoenix radio station KSLX - Mark Devine and Paul "NeanderPaul" Marshall - helped fund the $22,000 Frey statue, along with the Standing on The Corner Foundation and the City of Winslow.
    
Last weekend's installation ceremony kicked off Winslow's annual "Standing On The Corner" music festival.
